Boris Johnson could be given diversity training
instead of being sanctioned over burka comments


Boris Johnson could be told to go on a diversity training course instead of facing more severe sanctions for his comments over burkas

The former Foreign Secretary is facing a formal investigation by the Conservative Party for comparing women wearing the burka to "letterboxes" and "bank robbers" in an article for The Telegraph.

It has prompted a furious backlash from Tory MPs who accused Brandon Lewis, the chairman of the Conservative Party, of mounting a "witch hunt" and attempting to "kneecap" Mr Johnson.

Senior Tory figures told The Telegraph that they do not expect Mr Johnson to be suspended or have the whip withdrawn. He is instead more likely to be told to go...

I personally know Muslims ladies forced to wear burkas

My quest is:

When will the government issue licence plates for burka wearers so that people can find their friends by the numbers attached to their burkas :D

Jacob Rees-Mogg: Boris Johnson burka probe is 'show trial'

Jacob Rees-Mogg suggests Boris Johnson attracts extra criticism because people are envious of him

A Conservative Party investigation into Boris Johnson is a "show trial" and is being used to stop him becoming leader, Jacob Rees-Mogg has claimed.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, the Tory backbencher blamed Theresa May's "personal rivalry" with Mr Johnson for "taking the heat off Labour".

A Downing Street source told the BBC the investigation was "not about individuals or personalities".

Mr Johnson said women in burkas looked like "letter boxes" or "bank robbers"

TRUTH many robberies and a great deal of shoplifting has been done by people wearing burkas

His remarks - in a Daily Telegraph column last week - have been called Islamophobic and the Tory Party has received dozens of complaints.

The former foreign secretary, who argued against a ban on full-face veils, has rejected calls to apologise.

Mr Rees-Mogg said it was "hard to see" how Mr Johnson had breached the party's code.

The Downing Street source said the party is compelled to investigate any complaint.

The complaints will be looked at by an independent panel which could refer Mr Johnson to the party's board - it has the power to expel him.
Critics 'envious'

In a column in the Telegraph newspaper on Saturday, Mr Rees-Mogg said he "entirely agrees" with Mr Johnson over the issue and made clear that he also does not support a ban on the burka.

He suggested that senior conservatives have attacked Mr Johnson because of "envy" of his "many successes, popularity with voters and charisma".

The North East Somerset MP wrote: "Could it be that there is a nervousness that a once and probably future leadership contender is becoming too popular and needs to be stopped?

"This may explain the attempt to use the Conservative Party's disciplinary procedures, but it has been handled so ham-fistedly that it brings only sympathy and support for Mr Johnson," he wrote.

Mr Rees-Mogg - a leading Brexiteer who has previously criticised the prime minister - said it would be "absurd" to call Mr Johnson's remarks "either victimising or harassing" and it was "hard to see" how Mr Johnson could have broken the party's code of conduct.

He wrote: "When Margaret Thatcher was leader, she and Michael Heseltine were hardly soulmates, but she would not have allowed personal rivalry to take the heat off the Labour Party... nor would she have countenanced any attempt to have a show trial.

"Attacking Boris merely helps the opposition."

On Friday, the UK's equalities watchdog said Mr Johnson's remarks were "inflammatory and divisive" and his comments risked "vilifying Muslim women".

Conservative Party chairman Brandon Lewis and leader Theresa May have both called on Mr Johnson to apologise for his comments.

The founder of the Conservative Muslim Forum, Lord Sheikh, has written to Mr Lewis demanding "serious action", while former attorney general Dominic Grieve said he would quit the party if Mr Johnson became prime minister.

But comedian Rowan Atkinson was among those who expressed support for Mr Johnson.

On BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen also defended Mr Johnson. He said other prominent MPs had made remarks about Muslim women's clothing without facing an investigation.

"This isn't about Islamophobia," he said.

"This is about diminishing and humiliating Boris Johnson because he's seen as a political threat by those on the left and those in the Conservative Party at the moment."

The Telegraph newspaper said it had been "inundated" with letters in support of Mr Johnson; it gave over its whole letters page to publish them.

Mr Johnson is on holiday overseas and is yet to respond to the reaction to his article.

A panel will look into the complaints against Mr Johnson's comments. The head of the panel can dismiss the complaints if they are found to be obviously trivial, lacking in merit or unable to be fairly investigated.

Burka poll shows Britons BACK Boris Johnson

The majority of Britons believe Boris Johnson should not be punished for his burka comments, a Sunday Express poll reveals.

The poll found 53 per cent of people do not think Mr Johnson should be disciplined for his comments about women wearing the burka.

It also found that 60 per cent of people believe protection of our rights to free speech have been weakened.

Last night the Conservatives defended their inquiry, saying they had a “responsibility” to investigate following complaints over the article in which Mr Johnson called the burka “ridiculous”.

Under party rules a disciplinary panel should be set up. Mr Johnson could be suspended or expelled.

Boris Johnson's Facebook page hosts hundreds of
Islamophobic comments after burqa row


Boris Johnson’s official Facebook page is host to hundreds of Islamophobic messages, a newspaper investigation has found.

The Sunday Times said an examination of his web page uncovered calls to ban Islam, deport Muslims and “vile” attacks on London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

It comes after the former foreign secretary mocked women wearing the niqab and burqa as looking like “letterboxes” and “bank robbers”, with one Facebook follower praising him for having the “bottle to start getting rid of these bloody Muslims”.

A source close to the former foreign secretary said he “totally condemns the hateful views posted by a small minority” on his Facebook followers.

All of the comments appear under posts promoting Mr Johnson’s articles and speeches.

One reads: “Come on Boris, you had the bottle to start getting rid of these bloody Muslims, just like Enoch [Powell] wanted to rid us of all yer bloody c**ns.”

Another called for a policy which would see “no Muslims in government, police or army”.

Council of Europe warns Britain sharia law conflicts with universal
human rights saying it is greatly concerned by its recognition in UK


    Resolution highlighted conflicts between sharia law and universal human rights

    Measure adopted by Council of Europe raises concerns over role of sharia councils in family matters

    Resolution also said Muslim couples getting married in the UK should be legally required to civilly register their union before or during Islamic ceremony
The Council of Europe has named Britain in a resolution highlighting how sharia law conflicts with universal human rights.

A measure adopted by the 47-nation body, which oversees the European Convention on Human Rights, raises concerns about the role of sharia councils in family matters.

It also said it was 'greatly concerned' that sharia is applied either officially or unofficially in member states.

According to The Law Society Gazette, the resolution said that in Britain 'sharia councils attempt to provide a form of alternative dispute resolution, whereby members of the Muslim community, sometimes voluntarily, often under considerable social pressure, accept their religious jurisdiction mainly in marital and Islamic divorce issues, but also in matters relating to inheritance and Islamic commercial contracts.'

The resolution, passed at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, also said Muslim couples getting married in the UK should be legally required to civilly register their union before or during the Islamic ceremony.

It raised concerns about the role sharia councils play in the areas of family, inheritance and commercial law.

'The assembly is concerned that the rulings of the Sharia councils clearly discriminate against women in divorce and inheritance cases,' it added.

In February last year, a government-ordered review of Sharia law concluded that Muslim couples should be legally required to have a civil marriage in addition to an Islamic ceremony.

The measure would mean more women had protection under family law and would face 'less discriminatory practices', the independent assessment said.

It would bring Islamic weddings into line with religious Christian and Jewish weddings, the review said.

The Government has refused recommendations that would formalise Sharia councils in Muslim communities.

The report said banning Sharia councils was not 'viable' because they were fulfilling an important role and called for them to be regulated instead.

But ministers have said they will not do anything to formalise a secondary legal system in Britain.

The exact number of Sharia councils operating in England and Wales is unknown but estimates vary from 30 to 85.

The Council of Europe’s new resolution welcomed the 2018 recommendations and called on Britain to ensure councils operate within the law 'especially as it relates to the prohibition of discrimination against women, and respect all procedural rights'.

According to the Independent, a Home Office spokesperson said of the resolution: 'Sharia law does not form any part of the law in England and Wales. Regardless of religious belief, we are all equal before the law. Where Sharia councils exist, they must abide by the law.

'Laws are in place to protect the rights of women and prevent discrimination, and we will work with the appropriate authorities to ensure these laws are being enforced fully and effectively.'

Albania, Azerbaijan and Turkey were also named in in Council of Europe's resolution.

These three countries have all endorsed the 1990 Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam which is a declaration of Human Rights compatible with sharia.

The declaration does not contain a right to freedom of religion. According to sharia, a Muslim does not have the right to change his religion or become an atheist.

This is a key difference from the Human Rights declaration, reports the European Centre for Law and Justice.
